      Hello,

      Preflop is good.

      On the flop definitely bet bigger - $0.8-$0.9.

      As played, I like betting the turn as well, since we can make him fold a lot of hands, but I'd make it $1.4.

      On the river, I would check/fold. Qx beats us, also flush is quite possible, so no need to bet here.

      Best,
      Plamen
